BEN KUNDER 0 A. Wells   BEN KUNDER  Category: Indie Folk  Location: Toronto ON Contact Info: Management- Comino Productions  Sarah Erickson (e.) (tel.) 1-647-567-3510 ABOUT BEN KUNDER Expertly navigating that rarefied space between elegiac folk and accessible pop, Toronto-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben Kunder has emerged as one of the most electrifying musicians on the indie scene and a sought-after live performer. Kunder’s dazzling sophomore album “Better Human”, was released in late June, and is poised to dominate 2018. Real life anchors most of “Better Human”, the record exploring compelling themes like the birth of a child, the struggle for life balance, the workday reality propping up our outward façade, largely illuminating the human struggle to navigate through the world while sharing darkness in order to see the light. Produced alongside Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound, guests include Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Paper Bird/Bahamas singer Carleigh Aikins, Sarah McDougall, Ladies of the Canyon’s Maia Davies and Anna Ruddick, Arkells drummer Tim Oxford, keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, and Wintersleep drummer Loel Campbell, among others. Propelled variously by strings, pedal steel, keyboards, percussion, guitar, bass, and those spectacular before-mentioned voices  renders small moments in precise detail, making his songs both accessible and, occasionally, downright palpable.   MORE ABOUT BEN KUNDER  His 2015 debut "Golden" garnered critical acclaim and airplay from many respected international radio programs in Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy, along with airplay and interviews at BBC1 and BBC2 in the UK and at RTE in Ireland. He has shared stages with Sarah Harmer, NQ Arbuckle, Andy Maize (Skydiggers) and New Zealand’s Marlon Williams, Brooklyn’s Ana Egge and opened for Hudson Taylor on the main stage at Sligo Live Festival in Ireland, to name a few. Ben has toured extensively across Canada, Europe and the UK, showcasing at Folk Alliance International, NXNE and Canadian Music week,  his single ‘Half Moon’ topping CBC Music: Sonica’s Top 50 Songs of 2015 at #2.

Folk-Blues Trio South for Winter (2 vox, cello, guitar, mandolin) 0 South for Winter Thanks for watching our video!     Contact Info Phone: +1 (719) 287-4464 Email: Category of Folk: Blues, Gypsy, Americana Location: Nashville, New Zealand   Description of Music: With influences such as The Civil Wars, Ben Howard, and The Lumineers, trio South for Winter utilizes cello, mandolin, resonator guitar, and dynamic male-female vocals to create a unique soundscape described as "timeless, yet impossible to define." The trio's distinctive blend of folk, gypsy, jazz and blues has quickly gained attention from stations such as Nashville's 100.1, WDVX's Blue Plate Special, and NPR's High Plains Public Radio. The trio has release 2 EP's, completed a 15-state tour, and begun writing and recording its first full-length studio album less than 18 months from being formed.   "It’s difficult to believe that the Nashville, Tennessee, trio South for Winter have been together for only a year... The band have created an adept, genre-blending style of acoustic music that seems like it would’ve taken years to perfect. You’ll hear folk, blues, jazz, and gypsy music in what they do, with Stradal’s mournful cello undergirding Stone’s and Cichon’s weaving vocal harmonies through tight, complex rhythms that never become inaccessible. " - The Greenville Journal, 2018   Booking Goals: We will be booking for summer 2019 along the west coast of the US, as well as throughout the midwest US and Michigan. In 2020, we'll be planning tours throughout the UK, Europe, Australia/NZ, and Canada. We'd love to play your private showcase, contact us! Check out our website for more info.

Findlay Napier- Scotland- Singer Songwriter 0 F. Napier FINDLAY NAPIER WANTS TO PLAY YOUR SHOWCASE "... one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene." Folk Radio UK "Coming on like a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright." Acoustic Magazine PHONE: +447989332407 EMAIL: CATEGORY OF FOLK: Singer Songwriter/Scottish/Storytelling/Comedy/Teaching Artist BIOGRAPHY: As defined in the title of his remarkable 2015 solo debut VIP: Very Interesting Persons (No.2 in the Daily Telegraph’s top dozen folk albums that year), Scottish singer-songwriter Findlay Napier categorically commands musical VIP status. He turned those same supreme songwriting and storytelling gifts, allied with magpie-minded imagination and truly magnificent vocals, to his adoptive home town, on VIP’s hotly anticipated follow-up, Glasgow released in October 2017. In 2018 Napier was nominated for Live Act of the Year in the 2018 Scot's Trad Music Awards, the first solo act to be nominated in the award's 16 year history. As a teaching artist Findlay runs Glasgow Songwriting Festival and songwriting retreats at Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre in the Highlands of Scotland. Working with Vox Limninus and Feis Rois he has worked on songwriting and music making projects with prisoners, prisoner's families, prison officers and prison support staff in prisons across Scotland. He teaches ukulele to humans of all ages.  "Top honours were shared by Scotland's Findlay Napier and Quebec's La Vent Du Nord. Napier puts his especially muscular, grittily raw yet brilliantly nuanced voice, to both comic and emotive effect and allies it with some of the most fabulous (literally and figuratively) original songs that anyone's writing today." Live Review from Orkney Folk Festival 2018 FRUK OFFICIAL SHOWCASE: Thursday 14th Feb Lhasa Room 1600-1630 BOOKING GOALS: I have two representatives with me at Folk Alliance: UK Agent: Gail Cooke Canada Agent: Shelley Chase #1- I would like to build on my 2018 Summer tour of Canada by touring and securing festivals in 2019. #2- I am touring with Rebecca Loebe in California in October 2019. We would like to build on the 10 dates we already have. I would like to work more in the USA. It would be useful to line up enough work from 2019 into 2020 to apply for a year long visa. #3- I would like to like to find acts to tour with as a double bill (co-bill) in UK, Europe and North America. I currently work with Megan Henwood (UK) and Rebecca Loebe (USA).

Blair Dunlop (UK) FAI Private Showcase interest. 0 Blair Dunlop   Blair Dunlop will be at FAI Montreal 2019 for official showcase on  Saturday, February 16  5:45 pm-6:15 pm  Stan Rogers Room   From the start, Blair Dunlop’s albums have enjoyed critical acclaim, with each one expanding his musical horizons, his audience and his prodigious songwriting gifts. Now, with the release of his fourth album, Notes From An Island, it’s obvious that he remains consumed by the urge to make music. "I’m kinda buzzin’," is how he describes his enthusiasm for this album. "The initial reaction has been so amazing."   Coming from a man still in his mid-20s, whose debut album, Blight & Blossom, won the coveted Horizon Award at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, whose 2010 debut EP is now a collector’s item and who was declared the “vital bridge between Brit folk's first and latest flowerings” by Q magazine, these are strong sentiments indeed.   Blair is the son of UK Folk Musicians Judy Dunlop and Ashley Hutchings (Fairport Convention, Albion Band)
